What about payment for domestic workers?

There is no fixed wage for a domestic worker. The wage usually depends on what the employer is willing to pay or what the domestic worker is willing to accept. 

In other words, an employer can set a very small payment for a domestic worker, since there is no legal obligation thereafter. When domestic workers enter the labour market, they usually don’t know what their rights are. The minimum wage in Uganda was set in 1984 and has not been revised since then.
